At last, we're in Tagbilaran, Bohol!!!
|need to walk up these stairs to photograph the Chocolate Hills|
|rested a bit since it was a steep climb|
|the rest of our group below|
|photo time with my mom and brother|
|pagod na ba? =)|
|this is the way down if you want na makita ang sceneries beside the chocolate hills. not recommended for seniors though dahil medyo steep yun part na ito|
nothing much to see here pero free entrance naman (donation lang if you want).
Bilar Manmade Forest
if you're afraid of heights, malamang di ka tumuloy. mauga kasi yun bamboo bridge, ako mismo nahirapan when I tried it. Feeling ko talaga mahuhulog ako sa river. =)
Loboc River Cruise
There were two types of lunches here. One is the set meal while the other is the Buffet type. We chose the buffet lunch since the difference is just a 100-200 pesos. And gutom na rin talaga at this time so buffet is the way to go. Lots of food available like pork, seafood (crabs!!!), salad, etc. Sulit naman binayad namin. May libreng entertainment pa (solo guy singer who was singing songs of different languages - may korean, chinese and of course tagalog)
Prony the Python in Baclayon
there were lots of animals here pero the star is Prony the python. May entrace but i don't remember how much na. This is where we bought peanut kisses pala. A lot cheaper than in other places.
the place is very serene, we didn't take much pics inside kasi naalangan kami. It still is a church not just a tourist spot so we were contented taking pics outside. The church is also popular for the images on its walls (Padre Pio on the outside walls of the church) so you might want to check it out. By the way, if you're going inside the church be sure to wear proper attire kasi bibigyan ka talaga nila ng sarong para pantakip if you're wearing sleeveless or shorts.
|amazing isn't it?|
As per wikipedia: "Hinagdanan Cave was accidentally discovered when the owner of the area was clearing the decaying branches of the land when he found the hole. The owner throw a stone into the hole, then he heard a splash. Then he build a ladder to get into the cave. They named it Hinagdanan, means "laddered" used to get into the cave's interior."
|galing ng lighting hehe|
Bohol Bee Farm
This is also a resort/hotel so you can stay here if you want. They have a pool (pero nasa may resto/lobby area) and a stair access sa dagat. Parang more on pang-snorkling yun place niya so if you want to beach bum better go to alona or dumaluan na lang. What i absolutely love about this place is they have their own organic farm. siguradong fresh ang pagkain and their ice cream is to die for! If I visit Bohol again, di ko palalampasin puntahan ang Bohol Bee Farm because of their ice cream.

Island Hopping + Dolphin Watching
Free time at Alona Beach
